To avoid uncertaintyabout who, when and how much to tip,we have established a tipping systemwhereby all Group Tour passengerscontribute to a 'kitty', paid at thebeginning of the tour in cash (US Dollars)to the National Escort, who thendistributes it throughout the trip. If youbook a Private Tour, tipping is notincluded and therefore discretionary. Wewill suggest suitable amounts to be paidto your local guides and drivers. (Tippingamounts are subject to change).National Escorts & Local GuidesOne of the benefits of travelling withWendy Wu Tours is that our NationalEscorts (on Group Tours) and LocalGuides are always on hand to answeryour questions and offer support.
